    hey guys...is there an app that will allow the screen to stay black while i am on a call no matter where i place the phone? the problem i am having is that when i rest the phone on my shoulder during a call it turns the screen back on and i end up hanging up the call when my hair or ear touches the screen.
    thanks in advance for any help.

    Might want to check out Skreebl. I know people use it to keep their screens on when they are on calls and doing other stuff... maybe you could use it to keep the screen dark? For the record, mine stays black just fine against my shoulder, a pillow, running, even holding it a full inch or two from my ear. It is supposed to function that way.
